DOD Prototyping Fleet-Ready EV Chargers

Defense Innovation Unit installs pilot versions of new technology.

The Department of Defense (DOD) interviewed Benjamin Richardson, Director of the Defense Innovation Unit’s Energy Portfolio, last week regarding the installation of electric vehicle (EV) technology. His unit has installed pilot versions of EV technology in eight military bases in the United States. He said once installation is complete, the Defense Innovation Unit will then run a yearlong analysis, gathering data to inform what the next phase of EV development will be.

“By increasing the number of chargers on military bases, DOD is creating the infrastructure needed to expand EV usage, which will minimize carbon emissions in the long run,” Director Richardson said. “Upon successful completion of the pilot, DOD partners intend to rollout chargers to other bases across the United States.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Richardson to seek God’s direction as he heads the Defense Innovation Unit.
  • For U.S. defense officials as they pursue the administration’s goals for the reduction of carbon emissions.
  • For Secretary Austin to be led by the Lord as he leads the Defense Department.
